The Paco Garcia wines have been a huge success since their appearance on our shelves a couple of years ago. This is a new winery in the DO Rioja focused on producing high quality wines which respects the deeply rooted traditions of Rioja in tandem with the most modern winemaking techniques.
The Rioja Seis spends 6 months in French oak barrels (seis being Spanish for six). This young wine retains the fruitiness and freshness of the Tempranillo grapes. It displays powerful aromatics and a velvety mouthfeel. In the glass it is a youthful blackberry and ruby red colour clean and bright. The nose is an aromatic profusion of strawberries raspberries blackberries and violets. On the palate it is round and full with loads of fresh red fruit floral tones and sweetness.
The wine would be an ideal companion for light cheeses salads white meats and fish.
It is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
"There is one more young wine, the 2016 Paco García Seis, again Tempranillo, but this time matured in second use French barrels for six months. There are some smoky notes to complement the ripe fruit and the palate remains soft and juicy, keeping good freshness. 88 Points." (Luis Gutiérrez, eRobertparker.com, August 2016)
